The next PCI User Group has been scheduled for the 20th of April 2017. Our Compliance team will present about the below topics:

Latest guidelines on Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA)

Attackers continue to compromise valid credentials to access company networks and steal data. To help organizations combat this growing threat, we’ll share latest guidance on the proper use of multi-factor authentication for preventing unauthorized access to computers and systems that process payment transactions.

Additional PCI DSS Scoping Guidance

Incorrectly identifying where and how payment data is at risk in an organization’s systems continues to lead to data breaches. We will discuss guidelines for PCI DSS Scoping and Network Segmentation to help businesses address this challenge.

Good practices for Securing E-Commerce

Exponential online sales growth paired with the EMV chip migration in the US makes e-commerce payment security for merchants more important than ever before. As EMV chip technology continues to reduce face-to-face credit card fraud, the shift to e-commerce security becomes increasingly important to businesses large and small.


The presentations will include round table discussions where you will be able to ask questions and share the experiences with the rest of the group. Lunch will be provided.

About the PCI User Group

The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (or PCI DSS for short) is a set of complex regulations which all businesses taking credit card payments must go through. Although the exact requirements for each merchant to achieve PCI DSS compliance are dependent on the number of transactions taken annually, the requirements broadly fall into two parts: scanning and auditing.

The PCI User Group was formed back in 2005 for merchants and retailers to come together and talk about the issues surrounding PCI DSS. The aim is for merchants to be able to share experiences with fellow professionals, and to learn from the different businesses and sectors that attend the meeting.

Guest speakers are regularly in attendance, and include acquiring banks as well as representatives from Visa and MasterCard. This gives merchants the opportunity to hear the latest developments in PCI and to ask questions regarding their specific situations.

The PCI DSS User Group is chaired by ProCheckUp, and meets quarterly. It is held in central London. If you would like to join the group, please use this link to register your interest and to be notified of future meeting dates.
